    What is proper protocol here. Drop at the desk and get a sig or get a key and do everything yourself?

    The routes that I cover already have the storage unit keys. SDN, type in name, left in garage, resi; is the way I have done it for 15 or so years.

    I get the keys, and DR them in the units. The office will not sign for their "tenants"

    Their commercial tenants?

    From the Storage company's perspective I'd categorize signing for something and not putting it in the unit themselves as "dumb".

    If the customer checked up on a package and it was refused because the storage place wouldn't deliver it to the unit I'd imagine they'd get an earful from the customer.

    Public Storage on my route will not sign for packages for the people who rent storage lockers from them.

    I have keys. I normally try on their cloths in the storage unit while I deliver.
